The 2020 anime series for the second season of Major 2nd is getting its home video release handled by Avex Pictures and they’re going for the box set route. The show previously scheduled both of its DVD box sets with plans for a September 18th, 2020 and December 25th, 2020 debut where they’re priced at 17,000 yen each. It’ll bring the twenty-five episodes season out in a thirteen/twelve split. With the first set out we now have updated packaging for it as well as a look at both cover and packaging for the second set!

The series was directed by Ayumu Watanabe based on the scripts by Michihiro Tsuchiya, Kenji Konuda, Mitsuyo Suenaga, and Kenichi Yamashita. Kenichi Oonuki worked on the character designs with Shogakukan Production handling the animation.

The Japanese cast includes Natsumi Fujiwara as Daigo Shigeno, Koutarou Nishiyama as Hikaru Satou, Kana Hanazawa as Mutsuko Sakura, Natsumi Takamori as Izumi Shigeno, Yuko Sasamoto as Kaoru Shigeno, Yui Horie as Michiru Mayumura, and Jun Fukushima as Wataru Mayumura.

That original series ran for sixteen years between 1994 and 2010 from Takuya Mitsuda where it produced seventy-eight volumes to its name and over fifty million copies sold. And, of course, a couple hundred anime episodes and a few films.

Plot concept: Shigeno Daigo is an elementary school student whose father, Goro, is a professional baseball player. Inspired by his father, who was once a Major League player, Daigo started playing baseball with the Mifune Dolphins, a youth league team. He was unable to live up to the expectations of being the son of a professional, however, and quit baseball after less than a year. Then, in the spring of his sixth-grade year, Daigo’s school welcomes a transfer student who’s just returned from America. The transfer student is Sato Hikaru, and it turns out his father is Sato Toshiya, a former Major League player and Goro’s close friend. The fate of these two young men begins to move forward!
